Operations made easier
An Iceland-based logistics and shipping company operating out of 19 countries.
Connecting teams around the world to the same information at the same time was challenging, especially when speed and consistency were important.
No tools used previously matched the ease and familiarity of Workplace, especially on mobile.
How Workplace helped
From the CEO to the vessels.
Now everyone across global offices, home offices, on the docks and on the vessels can connect and communicate simply and effectively. Eimskip is now broadcasting company announcements using Facebook Live. Employees watch from wherever they are and ask questions and interact in real-time.
Operations made easier.
Captains and truck drivers use groups to keep teams updated about critical operations. For example, "The Vessel Operations group" posts ship movements more easily than the previous communication platform.
As one of Iceland's largest companies, getting timely information out to the media is vital. The communication team relies on their "First Responders" group to share media updates quickly.
"It's a way for us to be a more efficient global operation. The bonus is that we're closer as a company than ever before."
